Help us train a doctor for your ACCH service.

Dear Colleague,

NACCHO and the Remote Vocational Training Scheme (RVTS) would very much appreciate a few minutes of your, or your delegate’s time in completing a brief survey online.

This is because, as you will know, so many Aboriginal community controlled organisations find it challenging to attract and retain sufficient medical staff.

RVTS is a workforce recruitment and retention program.

 It does this by allowing doctors to train towards general practice (FRACGP and/or FACRRM) qualifications without having to leave their practice/community. 

The ability to train in this way assists practices in the recruitment and retention of doctors.

Doctors without general registration may also be able to train in the program.

Currently the eligibility to train with RVTS is limited to remote practice.

 There is an opportunity to extend RVTS training to include all ACCHSs whether or not they are remote. 

To do this, however, we need to secure funding from the Commonwealth Government.

In order to achieve this, we need to be able to demonstrate the need for such a service.

This is where you can help us by completing the survey at:

https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/NACCHO-RVTS

We hope you can find the time to complete this survey by Midday(12pm) Monday 10 December 2012

Your responses will be treated in strict confidence, and the survey responses will be deleted upon finalisation of the survey results.

In any reports from the survey, all responses will be de-identified.

We will, however, make sure you receive a copy of the final analysis of survey results for your own interest.

Please call Jeanette McLaren on 02 6057 4300 if you would like to discuss this invitation further.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Yours Sincerely,

Ms Lisa Biggs                                                                          Dr Pat Giddings

CEO, NACCHO                                                                         CEO, RVTS
